I’m on the Seven Hills Crafts blog today with some sweet, summery inspiration! I haven’t used my Zig Real Brush markers in a while and the bright, vibrant colours perfectly match the ice and lollies from the Avery Elle Sweetest set. I have two different card designs to share with you today, both using similar techniques. I started off by clear…

I’m back on the Heffy Doodle blog today with some Yappy Happy Thanks Mail! What better way to thank someone than to send them a card full of thanks? I started out by stamping the UK post box, the paper plane and four letters from the Yappy Happy Mail set onto some blending cardstock using Memento Ink. I coloured them…

Who doesn’t have time for a few rainbow treats every now and again? I’m up today on the Seven Hills Crafts blog, sharing some calorie-free scrumptious treats! I combined two Lawn Fawn sets, Sweet Friends and Baked With Love, to create this rainbow goodness. I started out with an A6 white card panel. After dusting the panel with my powder…

Happy Monday! I’m up with a guest post over on the Heffy Doodle blog today, sharing a card with you today that prominently features not one of the main characters in the Elephant of Surprise set, but one of those additional accessories – the balloon. These additional accessories shouldn’t be overlooked as they can often create fantastic backgrounds! Imagine a hundred…

I have a friend who loves manga and all things ninja, so I knew I had to make her a set of cards featuring these ninjas from the Altenew Ninja Invasion. This set of cards is over on the Seven Hills Crafts blog today. It’s been a while since I made a card without bringing out my Copics, but these cards…

Hand Drawn Birthday Florals

It’s Wednesday again and I’m back on the Seven Hills Crafts blog with some floral inspiration for you, featuring Avery Elle’s Hand Drawn Florals. Sometimes, a stamp set just begs to be Copic coloured and this was one that drew my eye for exactly this reason. If you’re not keen on Copic colouring, these could just as easily be coloured…

Cardmaking By 27th September, 2017 Tags: , , No Comments

Autumn always brings the coffee themed cards. I struggle with masculine cards but these stamps and colours came together to create the perfect birthday for my coffee/donut/pretzel-loving friend! I started out with repeatedly stamping the coffee cup, donut and pretzel from the Hero Arts City Adventure set with MFT Black Licorice Hybrid ink on some white card until the background was covered. I then…

I’m on the Seven Hills Crafts Blog today keeping it simple with a one layer card featuring Winnie & Walter’s Party On stamp set. I’ve been getting back into practicing with my Copic markers so I really wanted the colouring to shine through on this one.

The Unbearable Without You set is my second favourite set from the new HeffyDoodle release. Paired with a rainbow and some clouds, I think it makes a bright and colourful birthday card! I stamped the adorable bear and the clouds onto some ClareFontane 210gsm DCP Paper using some Copic friendly MFT Black Licorice Hybrid Ink. I coloured them in using some E30/50 Copic…
